Anzio Beach WWII Tour Photo Albums

In September 2016, I took a special WWII tour of Sicily and Southern Italy to visit many of the places where scenes in Rose of Anzio took place. My tour guide, Danila Bracaglia, even got me passes to enter sites that are closed to the public, such as the X-Ray Beach where the US 3rd Infantry Division had landed in Anzio. (Anthony, the main character in Rose of Anzio, belonged to the 3ID).



 You can click on the image below to go to the blog post where I had links to the albums posted on my Facebook page. The albums can be viewed by non-FB members. If you can’t visit Monte Cassino and Anzio/Nettuno in person, why not take a photo tour?

Photo taken in the American WWII Memorial Cemetery in Anzio.
Coincidentally, the floral wreath placed beneath the statutes
was a dedication to the US 3rd Infantry Division.
